Paid Sick Leave Administration for Multistate Employers: The Latest Nationwide Updates Impacting Policy Development and Administration - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to update policies and leave administration practices to ensure compliance with paid sick leave laws in effect nationwide.

With so many states and cities now enacting paid sick leave laws, multistate employers may be left scrambling to understand how newly passed legislation affects their organizations and intersects with other types of leave.

These new laws have a far-reaching impact, affecting employers operating in single states, multi-state employers, and those with nationwide operations. In many cases the new laws are quite expansive, covering not just medical issues, but also granting leave needed to manage domestic violence or stalking-related issues (i.e., safe leave time) or time needed for other necessities—for example, to attend a meeting about a child’s education plan.

Recently, New Jersey and Michigan enacted statewide paid sick leave laws. Also, in places such as New York City, employers have additional paid sick and safe time leave compliance requirements that recently took effect. In the District of Columbia, administration of the Universal Paid Family Leave will begin on July 1, 2020. Additionally, new laws in Connecticut and Maine are scheduled to take effect in January 2021.

Finally, keeping track of and managing employees’ paid sick and safe time leave can be an added challenge for employers—especially since they also have to understand and manage other types of leave, such as those protected under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). A technical mistake in administering paid sick leave and other time can result in costly and damaging legal repercussions.

To avoid legal risks, use this on-demand webinar to find out how to manage legal risks given the growing trend of paid sick and safe time leave laws nationwide.

After attending this webinar, you’ll be able to:

  • Interpret the practical implication of new paid sick and safe time leave laws at the state and local level 
  • Recognize how paid sick and family leave laws generally interact with existing leave laws, such as the FMLA and ADA when leave is granted as a reasonable accommodation
  • High-risk compliance areas to watch for when responding to requests for paid sick or safe leave, and how not to misstep 
  • Determine what qualifies as paid sick time or other protected time off
  • Provide employees with up-to-date information on their rights under the law, and how to update your company’s existing sick time and safe time policies
  • Navigate state and local paid sick and family leave laws and regulations when your organization operates on a multi-state or national level 
  • Implement a practical approach for updating and administrating your paid sick and family leave policy so you remain vigilant and in compliance with the laws applying to your particular organization
  • And much more!
